Will Shortz likes to run a special puzzle week each fall. In 2011, Patrick Berry created a six-day set where we had to solve a final meta-challenge on the last day.
For reasons you will discover as you work through these puzzles, the NYT did not provide electronic versions for the complete set. We did, though! You can work through all six puzzles using the XWord Info solver links below.
|Monday:||XWord Info solver||Tuesday:||XWord Info solver|
|Wednesday:||XWord Info solver||Thursday:||XWord Info solver|
|Friday:||XWord Info solver||Saturday:||XWord Info solver|
You can see the list of puzzles here but the real value of the book is reading Will's personal commentary on each one, and for that, you need to buy the book.
